The book, which will cost $85, features eight covers shot by different photographers.
Pirelli announced that McCurry had shot the calendar in early June, and the photographer said then he wanted to "portray women who are sexy without being naked."
Moss and Campbell will be joined by Georgia May Jagger, Stella Tennant, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Lily Cole during their turn on the specially designed catwalk. Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen's Sarah Burton will dress the models, and the presentation will reportedly be set to David Bowie's songs "Fashion" and "Rebel Rebel."
The catwalk presentation will be part of a multimillion-dollar closing games extravaganza, which will be titled "A Symphony of British Music" and will feature musical performances by Queen, George Michael, Annie Lennox, Adele, The Pet Shop Boys, and One Direction, among others. A troupe of 300 dancers will move through choreography inspired by London at rush hour, and Russell Brand will perform a comedic version of the Sex Pistols' "Pretty Vacant" and The Beatles' "I Am the Walrus." Sir Paul McCartney and Sir Elton John are also on the performance schedule. All of the performers are being paid a fee of £1 — about $1.55 at the current exchange rate.
The show's organizers stress that the set list is subject to change and are reticent about revealing further details. "We won't comment," a spokesman said. "We want the lineup to be a surprise."
The cover of Vogue Australia in May, the cover of Vogue Italia in March, and a much-buzzed-about W cover in July — it's been a busy couple months for Joan Smalls. So busy, in fact, that the Puerto Rican-born soon-to-be supermodel told us she'd be spending this year's birthday on a plane. "Lately it has been a whole lot of working, to then getting a flight," Smalls said. "Today is another one of those days."
All that hard work is surely paying off. Not only was Smalls recently revealed as the face of the Fall 2012 Fendi campaign, but in the aforementioned issue of W, Smalls was also dubbed a "new face of fashion" (along with industry darling Karlie Kloss). It's a title she's not taking lightly, especially in light of her birthday. "My biggest wish is that my W cover sells out this month," Smalls said.
Here's hoping that wish comes true. In honor of Smalls's 24th birthday — and what promises to be a very stellar year — a look at some of the model's chicest style moments as of late.
Huntington-Whiteley would have replaced Angela Lindvall, who left the host's chair after one season without explanation. Now Carolyn Murphy, whose last television appearance was a segment of The Tonight Show With Jay Leno in 2005, has been selected for the hosting job — but that didn't happen before The Weinstein Company hastily auditioned her, Karolina Kurkova, Hilary Rhoda, Elaine Irwin, and Rachel Roy for the position.
A friend of Huntington-Whiteley's insists she was "never fully committed to the project and there was no signed contract." The model may not be the host of the show, but it is believed that she will come back as a guest judge. Nevertheless, another source claims her departure caused a big fuss.
"Literally days before filming, the show suddenly had no host," a source said. "Rosie had been pushing really hard for the job. She'd charmed everyone. But then with less than three weeks to go, Rosie pulled out to do Mad Max, creating a huge drama. It put the production in a terrible position, and the Weinstein Co. even threatened to sue Rosie."
Filming on Project Runway: All Stars began early last month and features Georgina Chapman and Isaac Mizrahi as judges. Marie Claire editor in chief Joanna Coles will mentor the designers on the show, and so far guest judges have included Katie Holmes and Kylie Minogue.
Huntington-Whiteley will star in Mad Max: Fury Road alongside fellow model Abbey Lee Kershaw, Charlize Theron, and Zoe Kravitz. Last year she starred in Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Murphy had a small role in the 1999 film Liberty Heights.
Dixie Pearl was born in Nashville, TN, weighing in at 7 lbs, 11 oz. A spokesperson for Followill said, "Mom, Dad, and baby are happy, healthy and enjoying their new addition."
Aldridge was pregnant with Dixie when she walked the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show last November. This is the first child for the couple, who married last May.
Aldridge isn't the only new Angel mom: Alessandra Ambrosio was also pregnant when she walked in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show and gave birth to a baby boy named Noah in May. Adriana Lima announced that she was pregnant in March, and rumors suggest that Gisele Bundchen is carrying a child, too.
A spokesperson for Ribisi confirmed the happy news on Thursday afternoon, saying, "Agyness Deyn and Giovanni Ribisi quietly married in Los Angeles over the weekend." Deyn previously dated Josh Hubbard of The Paddingtons for four years but ended the relationship in 2008. She told The Daily Mail in March that she hadn't dated anyone for several months, partially due to her hectic acting schedule.
"The fact is I'm choosy, but mainly about a man's character," she said. "He has to be interesting, funny, and clever. I don't even mind if he's not very good-looking."
From hosting the live stream of this year's Met Gala red carpet to making sure New York's fash pack gets their Fashion Week sustenance the eco way, Elettra Wiedemann has been having a very busy year. And as she told us at this week's Coach Carnival in New York City, her Summer is about to get even busier.
"I'm getting married," the model revealed. "Next week, just at City Hall. I'm having a tiny, tiny wedding."
As if nuptial-planning weren't enough, Wiedemann also shared another activity that's sure to be taking up plenty of time — and energy: "I'm training for a triathlon," she explained. "My fiancé and I train together on a triathlon team. I'm not a great runner, and this is my first year on a road bike with my feet clipped in. Navigating New York City traffic with clipped-in feet has been quite scary, and becoming a better runner has been quite challenging. But I'm getting there — slowly!"
So what does Wiedemann keep stocked in her busy Summer arsenal of wardrobe go-tos? "Equipment shirts — I live in Equipment shirts. They're so light and so beautiful and they look elegant but they're not annoying, you know? They don't obstruct your day."
And what about the Summer's most important ensemble, the one she'll wear when she walks down the aisle? "Oh, no, don't ask," she laughed. "I haven't figured it out yet!"Above, Weidemann at the Coach Carnival in New York City, wearing a Coach bag (from the upcoming Coach Legacy Collection, launching Aug. 1), jean shorts, an Equipment t-shirt, Repetto flats, and a vintage belt. "I got it at a vintage store in SoHo, and it was in the bottom of a barrel. It's one of my favorites," Wiedemann said.
The two-minute "director's cut" clip, directed by Jonas Akerlund, shows Groeneveld dancing around to Stereo Total's "I Love You, Ono" on the French Riviera. First she languishes on the beach in a tiny black bikini, looking like a modern version of Brigitte Bardot in Roger Vadim's And God Created Woman. Later, she puts on a black t-shirt and jeans to head into town. Groeneveld turns heads when she wears one of the house's red leather skirts into a bar, where she sparks an impromptu dance party that spills into the street.
A look at the video, in all its French New Wave glory, below.
